2022 Robotics Camp
Open to grades 8-10
Under the direction of Harvey's robotics director Chris Kelly, campers entering grades 8 through 10 will learn to build, code, and operate a robot utilizing the components of VEX EDR V4, the same system used by many of the best high school and college competition robotics teams. This week-long program will feature a VEX Squarebot incorporating various sensors which the campers will code to interact with objects on Harvey's own 12'x12' VEX competition arena. The sensors include SONARS, bumpers, limit switches, shaft encoders, and more. Students will learn the basics of programming using the ROBOTC platform and will have their own programming computer for the week.
Meet The Director
Chris Kelly - The trophy case that sits outside of our robotics lab is full and overflowing with trophies that represent the 15+ first place tournament finishes secured by The Harvey School’s robotics team under the direction of Chris Kelly. Chris is a veteran teacher of The Harvey School with a 30-year tenure. He holds degrees in Electrical Engineering from The College of Notre Dame and Stonehill College. Last year, Chris started our Summer Robotics Camp, a program so popular that we are delighted to offer it again this summer.
